Some SimpleNews Support Modules (from forum posting)

Despite the name "SIMPLEnews" — you can get a lot content control with it
when you use it with the following modules:
Views: http://drupal.org/project/views
Insert View: http://drupal.org/project/insert_view
Node Queue: http://drupal.org/project/nodequeue
I had been frustrated that SimpleNews wasn't dynamic, that it was just a
node that that you sent out and it took the theme and formatted html for
email. Of course it does more than that with the subscriptions and editions
etc. But once I discovered the insert_view module, everything changed for
SimpleNews and it had the ability to then really be dynamic.
But then with Views, sometimes I had trouble filtering for precisely the
nodes I needed to be sent out in the e-newsletter. Node Queue comes to the
rescue. And it plays nice with Views. You can set a views filter to select
nodes based on the content of a node queue.
As for getting advertising blocks into a sidebar, hmmm, is there such a
thing as insert panel? I'm sure there is a way to do it. It would be really
easy to have the ads be in nodes that were interspersed with the other
content, Facebook stye.
